This is an introductory textbook on mathematical ecology bridging the subdisciplines
of population ecology and ecosystem ecology. The expected reader is you: a beginning
graduate student, advanced undergraduate student, or someone who thinks of
themselves as a student all their lives, with a working knowledge of basic calculus
and basic ecology. While this is intended as a stand-alone text, the level is such that
once you have read through it, you will be able to read more advanced texts and
monographs such as Ågren and Bosatta (1998) and Kot (2001) with greater depth.

Our new insight is on the interaction between relative labor turnover dynamics and lack of insurers’
premium ﬂexibility. A related possibility is that high labor turnover may be preferred by some
employers, especially small ﬁrms that employ homogenous workers with low job-speciﬁc human capital.
Workers tolerant of high turnover tend to be younger and healthier. By not offering health insurance,
despite the tax advantage, these ﬁrms deter older and less healthy workers.

The size of the strata in the population was estimated based on several sources. As far as
possible the same source (namely EUROSTAT) was used across countries for the sake of
homogeneity and comparability. However, in many cases EUROSTAT statistics are not
detailed enough for the purposes of the estimation and national sources were used instead.
For the full references on Eurostat and national statistics refer to Annex 2.
The following tables set out the stratification of the main sample in each country in
comparison to the composition of the population. ...
The goals of experimental neuroscience research are fundamentally to gain mechanistic
understanding of the pathology of disease in order to identify appropriate
targets for potential pharmacological intervention and evaluation of putative therapies.
With the advances in gene manipulation and transgene technologies, we have
unprecedented ability to generate animal models of disease that more closely mimic
the clinical conditions.
Noninvasive techniques capable of investigating altered pathophysiologies are
now of paramount importance.
The moderately thermophilic bacteriumAcidithiobacillus
caldus is found in bacterial populations in many
bioleaching operations throughout the world. This bac-terium oxidizes elemental sulfur and other reduced inor-ganic sulfur compounds as the sole source of energy. The
purpose of this study was to purify and characterize the
tetrathionate hydrolase of A. caldus. The enzyme was
purified 16.7-fold by one step chromatography using a SP
Sepharose column. The purified enzyme resolved into a
single band in 10% polyacrylamide gel, both under
denaturing and native conditions.
The cloned guinea-pig Y2 neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptors expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, as well as the Y2 receptors natively expressed in rat forebrain, are distributed in two populations. A smaller population that is readily accessed by agonist peptides on the surface of intact cells constitutes less than 30% of Y2 receptors detected in particulates after cell homogenization. A much larger fraction of cell surface Y2 sites can be activated by sulfhydryl modiﬁers.
Assessing the diversity of AnGR is made more difficult by the existence of many animal
populations that are not assigned to any recognized breed. Even though parts of these
“non-descript” populations are known to be multiple crosses of recognized breeds, some
animals may belong to (relatively) homogenous groups distinguishable from neighbouring
populations on the basis of identifiable and stable phenotypic characteristics (among which
may be unique and valuable attributes) that warrant their being distinguished as separate
In order to perform biochemical and pharmacological
characterization of CXCR1, we designed several CXCR1
constructs. All constructs, including a CXCR1–Gi2a
fusion protein, were produced in insect cells after infection
with recombinant baculovirus. The recombinant receptors
exhibited specific high-affinity binding of
interleukin-8, and Scatchard transformation of the binding
data indicated the presence of a population of single
homogenous binding sites.
